The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa Campus Center will celebrate its 30th Anniversary on Wednesday, May 5 with activities and performances scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. The Campus Center has served the UH Mānoa campus since its opening in 1974. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community are invited to participate in the event.

A time capsule burial will take place at 12:30 p.m. in the Campus Center Courtyard in honor of the Campus Center 30th Anniversary. Items to be placed in the time capsule include current photographs of the Campus Center and Hemenway Building, the Campus Center Board Charter, and the UH Mānoa student paper, Ka Leo. The projected opening of the time capsule will be in 2024 on the 50th Anniversary of the Campus Center.

The all day and night celebration will include live music performances from UH Mānoa student bands as well as performances by local performers, including Kapena, Hoʻonua, and Three Plus. In addition, the Taste of Mānoa Food Festival from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. will be an opportunity for participants to sample gourmet dishes prepared by UH Mānoa Sodexho chefs.

The Campus Center offers the university community and the public a wide variety of meeting, dining and entertainment options to enrich campus life and the educational experience at UH Mānoa. The Campus Center Board (CCB), a chartered student organization adopted by the UH Board of Regents in 1971, serves as the focus and unifying force in the life of all members of the university family—students, faculty, administration, staff and alumni. The CCB supports registered campus organizations‘ programs on-campus and draws together these facilities and activities to serve as a catalyst for intellectual, cultural, social and recreational needs of those it seeks to serve.
